Sldhed8 from the forums lives up in Alaska, and mentioned a while back that he helped shuttle supplies for the Iditarod and picked up some dog booties whenever he was doing shuttle runs. I, of course, instantly begged for some, and he was nice enough to send a set. I have been watching the Iditarod show on Discovery, so I am currently fascinated by the whole race and everything involved.
They are basically just Cordura with elastic and velcro, with no insulation. I wanted something to protect my mutt’s paws on rough and rocky terrain that can shred his paws if I am not careful. Argo does not appreciate them too much, but I am guessing that is mostly because he can’t walk on our wood floors without sliding all over the place. 🙂
